My parents divoreced when I was two. My mom re-married when I was eight and they have been married 17years. My step-dad raised me but my dad was still apart of my life. I want both of them to walk me down the isle but when I tried to talk to my dad about it he said “no, I dont like that its weird I am your dad”. It really means a alot to me to have my step-dad walk me down the isle too. Not sure how to get my dad to understand…Any advise?

I’ve had some friends that had their step dads walk them down halfway, then hand the bride off to their dad and he hands her off to the groom. It sounds busy but it was actually very sweet.

One solution is to have your dad walk you down, but have your step dad come out and give you a hug and shake the groom’s hand as well. That way, they both get recognized, but your dad gets his moment with his daughter.

Why don’t you let one walk you down the aisle and let the other one have the “father/daughter” dance? Thant way they each have a special moment with you.

Maybe you should consider a less traditional way of including both father and step-dad. You could be walked down by your mother. Then have the minister/officiant ask – Who supports this marriage?” Your father, step-dad & mother could all stand and say “We do”. Then your father and step-dad are equal in their responsibilities.
